Hello guys and i would like to know if any of you use or know any gadget to windowns/gogle desktop (or even a program) to moniture the temperature of the CPU and GPU, the laptop it self has 2 giant fans on the back 1 to each CPU and GPU. Why would i like to have one of those program is because when running games like battlefield 3 in max settings the both fans fire up , not the top speed but somewhere like medium  , the computer itself even running it doesnt heat up that bad just a little bit , but you know ..... just to be in the safe side a monitoring program doesnt hurt.



Cheers -Barce

If you are using Windows vista or 7 youcan download a desktop gadget that will actually tap into your video card and display it's internal information.  

This is a direct link to the download site at addgadget.com

you will also need to be running PC Meter in the background in order for the full functionality to come online.  I've been using this gadget for quite some time and i love it.

Enjoy!

MSI Afterburner works really well for displaying GPU temperatures/load/fan speed with an overlay on the game so you can see it in real time.  Seeing how you're on a laptop, I doubt constantly alt tabbing is an ideal solution for you.

I use CPUID Monitor, it's free and shows all the temperatures of your CPU, Mobo, GPU, everything in the small application. You should be able to do a google search for it. It won't disappoint you.

This. Plus you can record videos with it!
